Captain Obvious, Episode XXVI: Christina Romer

Christina Romer is resigning from the White House’s Council of Economic Advisers effective in September.

What is the White House going to do without the kind of keen insight only Romer could bring to the table?

(Bloomberg) — Christina Romer, who chairs the White House’s Council of Economic Advisers, said the U.S. needs stronger job growth to lower the nation’s unemployment rate.

The scary thing is that among Team Obama, this doesn’t qualify as a painfully obvious observation, which is probably why Romer was butting heads with the White House and is probably the real reason she’s leaving. She appears to have a little too much common sense going on to be a good fit with Hope & Change.
